Albany - A piece of Civil Rights history has a temporary home in Albany. The portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King , Junior that hung in the State Capitol from 1974 until April of this year is now on display at Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School in Albany.
The portrait was taken down earlier this year, to make room for a new larger picture of Dr. King. The original painting has been making rounds at Georgia schools named after the Civil Rights great, the last stop is here in Albany. Earl Lockette Junior says, "we would be in a totally different situation right now." Terrell Slayton, Assistant Secretary of State says, "we hope this portrait will allow people to have a beacon of light, a beacon of hope and really reflect on those things that he brought to us."
The portrait is only supposed to be in Albany for 30 days, but Slayton says he will work to see if the painting can stay in Albany until a permanent home is found for it.
